Terrence Ross throws down a 360 dunk against the Trail Blazers

Terrence Ross continued his redemption tour against the Portland Trail Blazers, throwing down a 360 dunk in transition.

Ever since missing a wide open windmill slam, and earning a spot on Shaqtin’ A Fool, Ross has answered back by throwing down some of the best dunks of the year. Last night against the Trail Blazers, Ross might of completed his best one yet.

After Shabazz Napier stole the ball off Ross, the high-flyer would quickly recover and steal the ball right back for his Toronto Raptors. With Evan Turner at the net, Ross decided to show everyone why he was a former Slam Dunk Champion, when he elevated and threw down a 360 dunk to give the Raptors a 78-76 lead with just over 7 minutes to play in the 4th quarter.

It wasn’t his only great dunk that night, with the high-flyer throwing it down earlier on in the 1st half.

Ross only finished the night with 4 points on 2-8 shooting, but his 4 steals and athleticism helped provide a spark off the bench, as the Raptors ultimately pulled away for a 95-91 victory.

The Raptors are one of the hottest teams in the East, now having won 8 of their last 10 games. They don’t always get the recognition they deserve, but hopefully that will change after people see Ross’ dunk. They’ll have a chance to build their 4-game winning streak on Wednesday, when they take on the Western Conference-leading Golden State Warriors on the road with tipoff scheduled at 10:30 p.m. EST.
